Why is so much money unclaimed?
Many millions of dollars become
'lost' each year, and go unclaimed when banks, companies and government departments
lose track of the true owner of the money they hold.
It is estimated that more than 50% of Americans can claim assets they
are unaware of - either personal funds, or assets of lost relatives.
Companies are supposed to make a 'reasonable effort' to get in touch with lost customers, but there is no penalty for failing to do so.
By law, American companies can't just retain any unclaimed monies for themselves. It has to be kept safeguarded in special
accounts where it may be held for several years awaiting a claim
- either by the owners or their rightful heirs.
The period of time that must pass before an asset is considered legally abandoned - the dormancy period - is set by law. It varies with the type of property involved, but often runs up to five years.
At the end of the dormancy period, if there has been no owner directed activity, those holding the assets - insurance companies, banks, brokerages, bussiness trade and credit unions, employers and utilities - must transfer them to the protective custody of government or state trust accounts in a process known as 'escheat'
The office of the State Comptroller is then in control of this money.
If no claim ever arises, the money will eventually go to the state budget or the federal government.
It is estimated that the State of California alone has now spent almost $5 billion of unclaimed money, that could have been claimed by the rightful owners !!!
Money can go 'missing' for
many reasons including:
Changes of address, name changes, misspelled
names, post office mistakes, marriages, divorces, bankruptcies, deaths,
job relocations, etc.
Often a check in the mail is mistakenly dismissed as junk mail, or simply misplaced. Uncashed checks are one of the most common types of unclaimed money in the database.
Typical funds that can be claimed include:
Dormant bank checking or savings accounts.
Forgotten savings bonds.
Tax refund checks.
Old travelers checks and money orders.
Unclaimed security deposits and utility deposits.
Death inheritance / wills.
Life insurance proceeds.
Safe deposit box contents.
Stock dividends and certificates.
Most adults are owed some
of this money and they don't even know it.
Government and State databases together with other
online resources can help you find out if some of this money is yours,
and help you get it back.
It is recommended that everyone should check the depositories in the
state that they live in every few years.
After a relative or family member dies, a full search of the United
States should be done to locate any unclaimed cash or assets that can
be claimed by heirs or family members. It is estimated that a fifth of inheritance entitlements go unclaimed.
Many US states now offer direct access to their information. eg California
, Texas , Florida , New York , Michigan , Louisiana , Ohio , Illinois
, North Carolina , Pennsylvania.
Online for 2012 -
Unclaimed money information is now also available for public use - State
of Washington , Georgia , South Carolina , Indiana, Missouri , Alabama
, Kentucky . Oklahoma , Massachusetts, New Jersey , Colorado , Wisconsin
, Maryland , Virginia , Carolina, Arizona, New Mexico, and Oregon.
Existing State Databases - the big problem.
The states that already run unclaimed money offices have a major flaw. These and all of the government sponsored sites related to found money are missing approximately 90% of lost money records, including most private company unclaimed records. They are good only for a limited amount of public funds, after a number of years have passed.
As a company can have its head office in any state, you really need a unified database of all US states, plus records of cash still in internal company dormancy periods.
State residents will most likely miss out on monies that they could have claimed. Plus it would take you approximately 50 hours to search all the government departments one by one.
There is no single government site that unites all the separate lost money databases.
If you really want to search all of the state and most of the federal unclaimed property databases, you need to search online using the full
Unclaimed Cash and Property Database.
This site contains the most comprehensive unclaimed money database on the Internet, with many thousands of hours of work involved in compiling all the information, and constantly updating with new accurate records.
A recent report on CBS news estimated that Americans are owed over $35 billion in unclaimed cash.
Although this sounds like a lot of money, the average owed to individuals is generally under $500, although there are many finds of thousands of dollars. At a time when many people are struggling financially, it makes sense to claim everything you are entitled to.
Previously this involved a lot of hard work, writing to every possible state source, but now several internet sites with unified databases make it as simple as searching for your own name.
(Remember to also search for alternative spellings of your name or maiden names.)
More Unclaimed Cash in the news:
A recent WRIS report highlights over $1 Billion in assets that is waiting to be claimed in the state of Virginia. One interesting remark reveals that many people are sceptics. They just don't believe that the government would give people money back instead of trying to take it.
Unredeemed Savings bonds -
ABC reveals how over $16 billion is unclaimed in old savings bonds, with the average amount around $1000. The US government used to heavily promote savings bonds to the public with patriotic ads during the sixties and seventies. They often have long maturity dates of 20-30 years, which makes them easy to forget or lose track of. And many holders passed away before the bonds could be cashed in.
So it is well worth searching for the name of elderly relatives. Even a $50 savings bond could be worth over $500 today.
The largest unredeemed bonds stand at several million dollars !!
This story from Forbes highlights the number of old life insurancy policies that have not been claimed, averaging out at $2000 per person. The report mentions that it is the state where the policy was bought that will hold the records, not where a policy holder lives or dies.
This is why it is important to use a unified service to track down lost money, that compiles records all across the US.

White from Illinois returned from vacation to discover 3 letters from his bank, which administered some stocks in Kelloggs. The first letter had asked him to verify his address. The last letter contained a quarterly statement which revealed the stocks had disappeared from his account. Inspections revealed that shares worth over $3000 had been handed over to the states unclaimed property division due to 'inactivity'. Mr White had previously felt no need to deal with the bank regarding these stocks, as all dividends were set to automatically reinvest for the long term. He eventually got the cash returned after making a claim, but the news story shows how easily this can happen.
Wisconsin kicked of a public campaign to try and re-unite state residents with their missing money.
Many millions of dollars are currently sitting unused in the states bank accounts.
Officials were recently at Miller Park in Milwaukee to kick off a travelling roadshow. Computers and claim forms were made available to help search for any funds that residents could possibly claim. One Wisconsin man is pretty popular with several lucky strangers, after re-uniting them with lost money on the unclaimed property database. Good samaritan Jay Wells was reported as saying "I'd rather people have the money, than the state"

But it seems like too much hassle to actually make a point of tracking them down. This may have been true in the past, but with online databases it is now as simple as making a claim to get any funds reunited.
